I have 2 questions:

1) If you choose to drink with the aim of getting drunk without spending too much money, which:
A) Strong drink would you choose (things like vodkas, rums, gins etc)
B) Lighter drinks that you have in higher quantities would you choose (beers, ales, lagers etc)

2) Where is the cheapest place to get alcohol? I.e which supermarket is the best? I will pre-drink from the stuff I bought at the supermarket, pre-drink more at a cheap weatherspoons (also do you know any good/cheap deals in spoons while i'm at it), and then go to a club.

I personally like sambuca or wine to get drunk. Works out relatively cheap either way. I'd go to Asda, as I find that to be the cheapest.

And I always get 2 cocktail pitchers for £10 from Wetherspoons, good deal.

Wine? Cheap? Really!?!!?!

I forgot to mention I'm a guy so cocktails are out of the question.

10 for £8 Carlsberg in Tesco, 440ml per can. I used to buy 3L bottles of Frosty Jacks a couple of years ago, 7.5% for ~£3. Mind you, it's truly revolting and may have went up in price (holy ****, that's weird I was on their website and got a whiff of the stuff from nowhere). Tesco Everyday Value Vodka 70Cl is only £9.70, get a mixer for about £1.50 and three of you will be grand. PS Frosty Jacks is truly disgusting, it's made of turnips and smells of farts. 2L bottles of Strongbow are available for ~£3.50, is slightly better quality drink and can be mixed with blackcurrant diluting juice.

Oh haha. Wetherspoons do cheap pints etc but I'm not too knowledgable on that and yeah, Asda do 3 bottles of wine for £10, and I'm usually drunk off 1 bottle or so. So works out reasonably cheap

For only £1 per bottle of Vodka, you can get blindness in one eye!

For cheap strong drink I'd go gin and mix it with cheap tonic water.

lighter drink I'd get wine from ALDI or LIDL as they do quite nice wine far cheaper than anywhere else - you can get palatable wine for as little as 2.50 quid a bottle.

So far the best deals I have found are:

http://www.lidl.co.uk/cps/rde/SID-5A...Detail&id=2633

and

http://www.lidl.co.uk/cps/rde/SID-5A...Detail&id=2619


but im still looking. So far better than everything tesco has to offer. I can't see asda's products as I don't have an online account.

Heading over to Lidl tomorrow on the way to the gym and I will pick up either of those deals above. And I will just ask the bartender at 'spoons if there are any deals/special offers they are doing.

The problem with cheap alcohol is the burning hell you feel the morning after.

I get large bottles of whatever vodka is on offer, but I stick to the brands like Smirnoff. And it lasts me a while. I do get cheapo wines as well as I'm probably going to feel bad the morning after regardless of the price of wine :P

You can often get 20 cans of Fosters/Carling/Carlsberg for £12 or £13 at Morrison’s. So far that’s the best value alcohol I’ve been able to find, apart from cheap ciders like Diamond White and Frosty Jacks which, as someone else pointed out, taste disgusting.
